However, drops his head into contact, doesn’t extend his arms well and doubles over at the waist, negating his ability to play with leverage and eventually is stonewalled. Displays solid coordination on the move and average range, displaying the ability to drop his pad level and cut down defenders in space. Needs to do a better job getting off the snap count consistently in the pass game.
Too often is the last guy getting out of his stance and is forced to play from behind. Doesn’t display the type of recovery ability to be late off the ball and will struggle with speed to the edge. Too often gets caught stopping his feet and lunging into rushers, loses balance and gives up the corner.
Displays solid short area quickness through contact and is a bit heavy handed. However, lacks the type of laterally fluidity to mirror through space. Pops upright off the ball initially, winds his arms into contact and isn’t real compact or balanced working his feet and hands in sync. Wastes far too much motion when trying to engage into contact in both the run and pass game.
Impression: Displays a good initial burst for his size, but struggles to gain leverage and stick to blocks in the run game. Looks nothing more than a size free agent who I don’t see as a roster guy in year one."
He still has a tendency to double over at the waist into contact, which becomes apparent especially in the run game, as he can be easily slipped/side stepped on contact. But, he’s coordinated on the move, can get into the second level and at 6-6, 307, you could do a lot worse when looking for developmental late round tackles."
